Evan received his B.A. from Haverford College in 2008 and now is part of Yale's Classics and Philosophy Program (in the philosophy track). His present focus concerns Socratic and Platonic method, particularly in Plato’s longer works, and the relationship between philosophic, scientific, and sophistic inquiry. Spinoza provides another historical point of interest. Evan thinks there is also much to be gained from more recent (both explicit and implicit) judgments about the role of the philosopher, and while he sees the classical perspective is valuable in its own right, he has found it can be useful for contemporary debates as well. When off-campus Evan tries his best to balance academic pursuits with baking, barefoot running, and Kyudo.
